Miss Hill could be headed to jail for 3 years over her pleading guilty to three counts of failure to file tax returns from 2005 to 2007. During that time Lauryn reportedly made one-point-eight million dollars. Today Lauryn Hill will learn her fate after pleading guilty to charges of tax evasion. The former Fugee is expected to appear in court in Newark, New Jersey today to be sentenced for the offenses.
Lauryn Hill claims she stiffed Uncle Sam on a massive tax bill for the same reason she fell off the map after the ’90s — scary threats to her and her family.
Lauryn filed legal documents asking for mercy before her sentencing, claiming there was a good reason she failed to file tax returns for 2005, ’06 and ’07. TMZ reports she earned more than $1.8 million.
